    PDF The Voyage PDF/EPUB µ Í songuarachando.co.uk voyage epub, The Voyage PDF/EPUBMurray Bail is one of Australia’s most acclaimed writers but he’s not an immediately accessible novelist His style is often challenging and reuires patience and concentration His latest book The Voyage is certainly a demanding read and although original and inventive in its use of language and style it’s a book that ultimately I found unsatisfying There are no chapters or paragraphs few breaks in the headlong rush of the narrative and with some odd punctuation Most confusing of all is the lack of chronology and rapid shifts in time and place sometimes within the same sentence It’s the story of Frank Delage who has invent

    PDF The Voyage PDF/EPUB µ Í songuarachando.co.uk voyage epub, The Voyage PDF/EPUBFrank Delage the central character whose thoughts readers share in The Voyage is the inventor of a new piano and the novel traces his return journey from his efforts to sell it in Europe He’s not a very good businessman and even less successful in marketing and he has made only one rather dubious sale Vienna is too conservative to be interested in a new design and only a fool he is told would have tried to market his bold new design there in a place so mired in musical history He has however after a long time alone captured the heart of Elisabeth the daughter of a prominent Viennese patron of the arts so perhaps it has not been an entirely wasted tripHowever it would be a mistake to approach this book as a conventional novel about the disappointments of a middle aged man When I posted a Sensational Snippet from The Voyage last week I commente

    PDF The Voyage PDF/EPUB µ Í songuarachando.co.uk voyage epub, The Voyage PDF/EPUBAn absolute beauty of a novel This may be Bail's masterpiece though Homesickness is still probably my favorite This is a uiet novel with little to nothing in the way of action but something in the interplay between past and present past being the protagonist's efforts in Vienna to sell his New World version of a piano present being his sea voyage back to Australia created a gentle momentum At times I though of it as the back and forth of left hand and right hand on a piano and at others as the way a mind wanders away from then back to a piece of music being listened to But whatever the metaphor The Voyage just gets something about New World v Old World tensions and anxieties Australian in this context but resonan

    PDF The Voyage PDF/EPUB µ Í songuarachando.co.uk voyage epub, The Voyage PDF/EPUBI liked this okay as I was reading it and I like it a lot for reading all the negative reviews Bail does the now standard modernist version of is this now or is this a memory and what's the difference really and does it fairly well For the record now is on a boat from Vienna to Australia The memories are of Vienna It's pretty easy to get once that's clear The story is similarly simple a man goes to Vienna music capitol of the Western world to sell his newly invented piano He pretty much fails to sell it but does succeed in picking up the daughter of a Viennese socialite and music afi

    PDF The Voyage PDF/EPUB µ Í songuarachando.co.uk voyage epub, The Voyage PDF/EPUBThe story in The Voyage eddies and swirls and moves in and out of focus and backwards and forwards in the characters' lives and the places they find themselves in just as the sea on which the ship that so much of the story takes place aboard is always moving And that made me think that this book could have been published the way BS Johnson's Book in a Box The Unforgettables was published in loose leaves that can be read in any order But perhaps because the transitions are so seamless between present and past place and character I kept looki

    PDF The Voyage PDF/EPUB µ Í songuarachando.co.uk voyage epub, The Voyage PDF/EPUBLittle bit 'meh'which I feel is a little damning This is a nice book not as magic as Eucalyptus but not dreadful either and it's a slim one so not taxing most fun was trying to figure out when it was set And that's not entirely a good thing probably

    PDF The Voyage PDF/EPUB µ Í songuarachando.co.uk voyage epub, The Voyage PDF/EPUBBail's writing has the curious effect of making me feel like I'm watching the events unfold from behind slightly foggy glass or in a dream or underwater; I like it but am never sure I've fully understood everything being said The Voyage was fairly engaging the run

    PDF The Voyage PDF/EPUB µ Í songuarachando.co.uk voyage epub, The Voyage PDF/EPUBWhat a slog of a read Very short book that drove me crazy with run on sentences sudden shifts with no paragraph breaks and an only moderately interesting story I stuck with it based on the interesting premise Uniue writing style but a bit of a bore as stories go

    PDF The Voyage PDF/EPUB µ Í songuarachando.co.uk voyage epub, The Voyage PDF/EPUBI found this book challenging with no chapters there was no logical breaks Once I got into it I liked that I was basically in his thoughts and it gave a perspective on that our thoughts never cease
